The Public Square

"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?" It's a Wonderful Life, 1946

George Bailey can teach us all a lot about life. Every year we dedicate the last program of December to think about what Frank Capra and Jimmy Stewart were trying to tell America in the classic film It's a Wonderful Life. So grab your last holiday cup of cheer and join us around the radio this week on The Public Square®.

This week we're taking time to talk about some amazing American heroes, our veterans. Although Veteran's Day is behind us, every day is a good day to honor those who have served in this nation's military. Jeff Sanders and Wayne Shepherd had the privilege of interviewing Karl Schmidt, a World War II Veteran, who among many things served as a Marine spy and scout in the campaigns at Guam, Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal, along with receiving three Purple Hearts. Living history on The Public Square® -- please tune in!
